The 72-year-old bench coach gave an impromptu news conference in a stairwell. It was more about a lack of respect from Steinbrenner than anything else.

"No question," Zimmer said. "Or I'd still be here."

"He called me Zimmer for 25 years, I called him the Boss for 25 years. Today he's Steinbrenner, he's no longer the Boss."

He described a feud with Steinbrenner that began last year after the Yankees lost in the playoffs to Anaheim. Zimmer said Steinbrenner had accused him of leaking information to reporters. Steinbrenner stopped speaking to him, Zimmer said, and when he reported to spring training he was told Steinbrenner had taken away.

"There were just so many things," Zimmer said. "I mean, how much can you take? It's a tough way to leave, but that's what I want to do.
